MBT ‘has no future’ if no saviour is found for Swiss owner
The administrator of comfort footwear brand MBT schuhe has warned that if a buyer is not
found for the business’s Swiss parent company within a matter of weeks, the brand will not have a future.
Chris Laughton of Mercer & Hole, which was last week appointed joint administrator of Masai GB Ltd, the UK arm of MBT schuhe günstig, told Drapers that unless a buyer for parent Masai Marketing &
Trading AG is found soon, stock could run out.
“If the MBT schuhe kaufen overseas business can be revived, then that gives the UK
business scope to continue, but if no one comes in to buy the business and kick-start production then the operation here will not be able to
continue,” he said.
“Anybody who knows the business will know there is a relatively limited time that this UK operation can continue without having supplies. We are
talking weeks rather than months.”
One MBT schuhe online stockist told Drapers he doubted a buyer would be found for the
business. “I would be surprised if anyone steps up to the plate to drive the business forward,” he said. “It’s a bit of a dead duck, to be honest.”
Frances Chalmers, owner of indie Exclusive Footwear in York, disagreed.
“I’m confident a buyer can be found,” she said. “They haven’t moved the product on enough in recent years but there is no one else like them and it
would be a shame if the MBT schuhe preise couldn’t be saved.”
Mercer & Hole said it had shut two of MBT schuhe wien ’s 10 standalone stores in
Guildford and Tunbridge Wells as part of the administration process.
